Winter scenery photos (with bonus dog)

Imaginary Karin - winter scenery

The photo above is not black and white, nature just lost all its colours that day. I love when the frost clings to the trees and make everything white, it’s so pretty!

I always take a lot of photos of nature, but especially in the winter (and autumn). IMO, snow and ice makes everything look just a little bit more magical.

Here’s a photo dump from the past month or so. Scroll to the bottom if you’re just here for the dog. ;)

Imaginary Karin - me and Zappo

^ Here’s evidence I could never be a fashion blogger.
This is basically what I look like from November to March: nothing but thick sturdy (and shapeless) winter clothes, usually matched with a face flushing red from the cold.

I like pretty clothes as much as the next girl, but when you’re in the middle of a Scandinavian winter and the temperature drops below a certain threshold, all thoughts of being stylish goes out the window ?

Imaginary Karin - my whippet Zaphod

Imaginary Karin - my whippet Zaphod

The photos of Zaphod are taken by Markus. He recently bought a new camera and borrowed some kind of fancy lens from work, so he has been practising using the dog for a model. I think the photos look really good, I might have to learn how to use that thing too.

Slightly off-topic, but I can’t believe the dog will be 12 years old next month! He used to have a black face with just a white strip down the ridge of his nose, and now he’s all white! But he’s still beautiful, my old boy. ❤

    Whoa. These photos are absolutely amazing. :D I adore winter scenery and they are perfect. Hah! Fashion blogging is not important when you are living in a place that is so freezing.

    Wow, 12 years old. What a sweety. :D

    Hee hee, I stole all the photos (Zaphod included) to use as wall papers on my laptop. Amazing photos!!! Thank you.

    Zaphod looks gorge. (omg Zaphod Beeblebrox tho)

    I think you could be a fashion blogger, but basically, screw winter haha. It is really hard to look fashionable in the snow, and I don’t blame you. It’s all just the same coats and beanies and whatnot. ? I think fashion bloggers who are really dedicated to showcasing their outfits (not me even though I do it every two weeks, ha) will sacrifice getting cold to get some photos in some really nice looking clothes that don’t actually keep them that warm. It’s good to be practical. ;)

    I love the photos! Make good use of that lens while you have it… it takes beautiful photos!

      Yes, Zaphod Beeblebrox indeed haha! And thank you!

      Yeah, winter and fashion isn’t a good match. During warmer days you might get away with something lighter and more stylish, but when it get REALLY cold you don’t have a choice. Do you wanna look cute or do you want to survive the day without frostbite? Pick one ’cause you can’t have both ?
      I’m massively impressed with those braving the elements to show off a nice outfit.

    Beautiful photos! I love the scenery in Winter and Autumn as well, but we’ve not had a good snowy Winter in ages. :-( They’ve mostly been very very wet.

      That’s too bad, wet winters are no fun. :( I hope you get proper snow at least for a day or two!

    Beautiful scenery (and gorgeous dog). It looks so peaceful and serene, although I will happily admit to preferring looking at it through my computer screen than the idea of being out in it!

    Wow! These pictures are stunning! I love when right after it snows everything is soft and peaceful! You’re so good at nature photography!

    These photos are BEAUTIFUL <3
    Amazing photography, and hey the dog is an adorable addition, well, because everyone loves pups! ^.^

    Also, winter for me means I don't care if I look like Frosty the damn Snowman all lumpy and shiz as long as I'm warm! o.O
    Winter is NOT my time for fashion blogging usually.

      Thank you! When in doubt, it’s always a good idea to have a dog in your post, haha ?

      That’s my take on winter too. I’ll reach for the warmest coat and sturdiest boots I have, fashion be damned!

    Wow, you have such beautiful scenery where you live! I love the photos! I agree that snow and ice makes everything look magical. The white tips of the branches looks so pretty.

    Aww, Zaphod looks so cute with his jacket :D He is a beautiful dog indeed!

      Thank you so much! I’m privileged to live on the outskirts of town, close to the forest. So I don’t have to walk far to find something pretty to point my camera at. :)

    I’m a huge nature geek as well – on top of being a weather freak. Those photos are absolutely gorgeous!
